'Star Wars: The Last Jedi': Mark Hamill Will Campaign For An Oscar

OnePlus

Are you and your family counting down the days until "Star Wars: The Last Jedi"?

"I want to sit in with them and hear my first experience of this movie - to hear all the gasps, to hear the laughs, to see everybody lifting their seat for the exciting moments".

While smaller films can get a potential box office boost from a Globes nod, Disney and Lucasfilm clearly believe that, when it comes to Star Wars, the franchise has ample Force on its own, thanks very much.

"Nothing really prepares you for this incredible onslaught of fandom and joy that we get another Star Wars film", said Gwendoline Christie.

No spoilers here, don't worry.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will open in New Zealand cinemas on December 14.


The cast came together in LA with director Rian Johnson on Sunday to build buzz for "The Last Jedi", which sees the return of the characters introduced in J.J. Abrams's first entry in the rebooted trilogy.

A sequel with a working title of "Star Wars: Episode IX" is scheduled for for release on December 20, 2019 and will be the final installment of the newest epic trilogy.

The movie stars Mark Hamill as Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, the late Carrie Fisher as Luke's twin sister Princess/General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as the young Sith lord Kylo Ren, and Daisy Ridley as Rey, the last Jedi from the desert planet Jakku.

"I think it's because the world we live in is a changing and evolving place that it retains the simplicity of those elements", she said.

"The Last Jedi" - filmed on the west coast of Ireland and at Pinewood Studios near London - marks the last appearance of Fisher, who died after already having wrapped her scenes.
